Im running brushless 13.5 system.

Also, I can here a humming/whirling sound while running low speed (walking speed), Im not sure if it's the internal gears (all-stock) or spur and pinion (Tamiya .4 module). I havent rebuilt the gearbox since December.
The spec-r case comes with adapters to accept the normal (or aftermarket) ball diff. The stock gears also fit.

Humming sound is typical for tight mesh or worn gears.

Talking SHORT ARMS?

The short arm suspension is kind of misleading. It's the pivot point from hinge pin to hinge pin that's is actually longer or shorter that's the difference in length when they call "short or long arms".
The length of the wheel axle and swing shaft is what varies in length to compensate distance from hinge pin to hinge pin and actually ends up determining overall length of the wheel base. This overall length is still the same. Besides adding shims behind the wheel itself is the only way to widen the lengthen from wheel to wheel. I hope this makes sense!

i believe the kit comes with 1XD-1A rear blocks as stock...

but maxpower is right... you can widen the track width by using wider blocks (F is the widest). along with this you can also try using the 6mm alum wheel hexes (silver in color).

Great information guys, this is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I picked up wider blocks (retaining stock toe/sweep) and the wider hexes already.

Massive thanks!

Hey folks, I just got an FF03 today for my birthday. Without going through the hundred and something pages, what are the main replacement parts I'm gonna need for this thing? WHat other models have interchangeable parts? Is it true I can't run a normal 64 pitch spur gear on this vehicle?

Thanks in advance. I look forward to spanking some VTA butt in our local VTA/GT class.
